DC Fast Charger

Courtesy of Chateau Montelena, visitors to the winery who drive electric-powered vehicles can now charge their batteries while they enjoy our hospitality. In partnership with Ecotality, the company that sells/markets EV charging stations that exist on the Blink Network, we have installed a Pedestal Charger, along with the first Level 3, DC Fast Charger in the Napa Valley. The DC Fast charger can charge most batteries in less than an hour. It will be tied into the Blink Network of charging stations throughout the country so that EV owners on the network will be automatically pointed to us as they make their way north of San Francisco. The DC Fast Charger is operating now, the Pedestal Charger will be operational in the near future.

  1. I too suffer the red wine headache syndrome. I have asthma, and migraines. And, as many others, drank wine in Italy for 3 weeks with no migraine. I was told over there that US winemakers add more sulfite a than in Europe.
    I am allergic to oak per my allergy dr. I have spent years trying to figure out the common denominator as some reds in US cause no problems while others do with as little as 2 glasses. It would be wise for people with this syndrome to perhaps try allergy testing and even Pre-medicate with a non-drowsy allergy medicine such as Zyrtec, Allegra or Claritin to see if this alleviates the post-wine headache.
    Yours in wine,
